Roast Beef - Country Style Cooking


Sometimes you have to dig a little deep to come up with a tasty menu for the family especially when times are tight. This is one recipe that reminds me of my youth - living on a farm - and eating good things from Mommas kitchen. The roast comes out tender and moist, flavorful and the beans are a plus, not to mention just plain good.


Roast Beef - Country Style Cooking

1 lb dry pinto beans
6 lb beef rump roast
1 tbsp shortening
1 cup green or banana pepper strips
2 medium onions -sliced
2 cups tomato juice
1 -8 oz can tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
2 tsp cider vinegar
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp salt
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp thyme
Carrots if desired

Wash beans, cover with cold water and let soak overnight. Bring beans to a boil and cook 1 hour. Drain and rinse several times discarding water. Brown roast in hot fat in a Dutch oven or roaster. Add peppers and onions and cook until tender. Add beans and remaining ingredients. Cover and bake in a 350 degree oven for 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until beans are tender and meat is done. Goes great with mashed potatoes.
